Cool that would be nice I still have three parts I need to order. Past that I can pretty much build a second car minus chassis, diffs, and aluminum.

He won but it wasn't quite domination. Him and Hebert ran almost identical times. But the car did look good

Yeah I understand not everyone was there. I know none of the big Tamiya guys weren't there. A few Xray drivers from across the pond. Some Hot Bodies drivers. Although it's not like Volker doesn't hang with those guys and win here and there. At the end of the day Volker took TQ and the Win. Last I checked those were the important things too. Plus isn't not like he was going against slouches.

The car looked amazing this weekend and did things I have never seen a touring car do on carpet. The team was running some pretty interesting setups and Ronald's car was particularly impressive. This car looks great but I can tell you that it is not designed for beginners. You have to be a pretty good wheel to exploit the features of this car.

Amain hobbies confirmed at IIC that they will be selling the full line of Yokomo products and that includes the BD7 and all of the parts. Good news, but it will be a while until they are ready to start selling as I understand it.

Oh yeah at the Worlds he was super fast. Too bad tire strategy played such a big part. He used his good set of tires and got caught up in some carnage early.

And yes I would put Hebert against anyone any day and he for sure has a shot.

Ronald and Keven where the class of the field in modified at iic. There was a good battle between Haynes (asc), Dumas (top) and Paulie (xray) for third. Paulie broke early though..
